In April we found ourselves hiding out in Walla Walla, WA. There were plans for a surprise birthday party for our son in La Grande, and there aren't too many places to go stealth in a small town. We had never been to Walla Walla, so it seemed like a fun place to check out and spend 24 hours before the party.
Walla Walla is a small town with a very sophisticated feel. It's a college town, and home to some 37 wineries, great restaurants, has a vibrant art community, and tons of outdoor activities. We were amazed...I only thought they were famous for their onions! I kept thinking that it would be a great place to be young, a great place to start over, or to retire.
This restaurant was closed, but it just had a cool vibe. I loved the door!http://www.hotelsone.com/walla-walla-hotels-us/marcus-whitman-hotel-conference-center.html They have a great happy Hour. Loved the Coconut Shrimp!
Their Calendar of Events for the summer is full of Blues, Wine and BBQ! Sounds like we need to make another trip! http://www.charlessmithwines.com/press.php
I loved the distinctive black and white labels.
I vote for the Fish Tacos! Walla Walla is definitely a place where I'd like to spend more time!
